Chris Rock has announced details of a UK tour for 2018. See dates and ticket details below.

The film and comedy legend will be bringing his ‘Total Blackout’ tour to these shores in January – marking his first UK shows in 10 years.

“[They will be] great shows, a lot of guest stars,” Rock told Wendy Williams about the tour. “Dave Chapelle, Ali Wong…it’s been crazy.”


He continued: “I’ve been working, but I haven’t been on tour. You know, I hosted the BET Awards, I hosted the Oscars, I’ve had movies come out, so I’ve been here, but I haven’t been on ‘tour‘ tour.

“It’s what I do, I started when I was a kid, and it’s what I do best.”

Hailing his comedy in Rolling Stone, fellow comedy veteran Jerry Seinfeld said of Rock: “He has an incredibly high pain tolerance because it is difficult to go out there with material that you’re not sure of.

“To constantly go back and start over is very impressive, and a little insane.”
